Mother’s Day Craft and Gift Idea

This is such a gorgeous Mother’s Day craft idea!

As a mum myself, I think this is such a cute idea! It is a gift that will keep on giving. The child and mother can plant the seeds together, water it and see them grow into beautiful flowers.

Here is what you need:

  • Biodegradable Seedling Pots
  • PVA glue
  • Brushes
  • Colourful tissue paper
  • Flower seeds – purchased from Bunnings

I purchased the pots from my local cheap shop, however, I have seen some similar pots at Bunnings. You could also use small clay pots as well!

Biodegradable Seedling Pots for Mother's Day Craft

Here is how easy it is!

  1. Cut the tissue paper into small squares.
  2. Using a brush paint the pots with the PVA glue and stick the small square pieces of tissue paper all over the pot.
  3. Once the pot is fully covered, put another coat of PVA glue over the top of the tissue paper. This gives it a shiny look.
  4. Leave the pots to dry overnight.
